Summer has arrived! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To boost your comfort and really relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a great summer in Cambridge is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Pliescott HVAC Services LLC always recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape this season.
- First, another time to cite the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter consistently! Replace the filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
- Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. mow the grass, get rid any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
- To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where it should and not leaving through gaps.
- Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.
These simple steps can save you from unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
